Kogi at The Alibi Room
Korean BBQ reigns at this asymmetrical Culver City night spot, now home to the popular eats once available only on Kogi Food Trucks. Alibi Room is a small bar occupying an oddly shaped space on Washington Blvd. The Kogi menu available is Korean and Mexican fusion with such options as the three taco combo, which comes with a choice of short rib, bbq chicken, spicy pork, or tofu, sweet-chili chicken quesadilla, and Korean spiced fries. Draft beers include Stone IPA and Mama's Little Yella Pils, with even more microbrew options in bottles in cans. Cocktails range from pisco sour to fresh berry caipirinha.

At his 14-seat Ko, he’s preparing more innovative Asian-American dishes, like diver scallops with nori puree and fried apple pie with toasted miso. And he’s doing it without waiters, or a telephone: Chef de cuisine Peter Serpico passes food directly to guests, who book their reservations online at <a href="http://www.momofuku.com" class="external">momofuku.com</a>.</p>
